    Ya lucky bugger Tania666, we don't have a yard anymore, live in a unit, can't wait to get into a house again, critters will have a whole shed to themselves instead of just a room.

    My two, Mary and Sleepy and their nice size enclosure, it gives them way more room width wise than their old 3ft tank did and unfiltered daylight.

    OmGOSH [MENTION=39804]critterguy[/MENTION] they're so freaking cute!!!! I miss keeping blueys, I haven't had one for 15 years or so. But over the years have realised how much they are creatures of habbit :) this girl and a couple of babies at mums there are some babies in my yard too are all quite happy to turn up at the back deck after the dogs have been fed and put away ;) to scab whatever the dogs left behind lol they're I alternate between them and the magpies every.other day for treats :) they're happy to come take mince right out of my hand :)

    Mate the easterns and the kimberleys look good. Like the colour of the one in the second kimberley pic. Will they hold any of that colour as they grow?

    i don't know how they will colour up, could be anything. Kimbos go through a huge colour change as they mature. Here's the parents of that litter.

    I don't think I'll ever stop drooling over the pictures you post, RoryBreaker. Your Blueys, especially the SE QLD locale Eastern, are stunners!

    Here are some recent pictures of my lot:

    Astro

    Ninja's been dropping sperm plugs, Astro on the other hand is still an unknown to me. I'm hoping for a female, but whichever way he or she ends up, his/her colours, although dark - are really nice! Just sloughed the day before yesterday too. :)

    Gorgeous Bluey! What do you mean his belly goes orange than to normal colour? If you mean his belly goes white (or milky), that's a normal occurrence when leading up to a shed. Their colours dull quite a bit before clearing, then they slough off a layer of the old skin. The above pictures of his belly look normal to me, nice yellows!

    I don't have any pictures of my SEQLD Eastern, aka Gizmo's belly, though his belly looks pretty similar to Rex's, maybe a little lighter in shade. I do have some of my het-melanistic Astro, so while the belly is much darker than your Rex's, it is very normal to be that colour.

    I can not get over how fast they grow.
    I got my first blue tongue in February now it is about 30 cm long.
    I use a hand blender to mix green salad, strawberry, blueberry , kangaroo mince, boiled eggs, peach, pear
    I then put the mix in ice trays place in freezer. perfect size to serve after defrosting
    I feed my blue tongue every 2nd day so he does not get to fat like me
    they are so easy to look after and cheap to feed
